Another injectable filler option that Dr. Anitha Reddy, Medical Director of M.D. Aesthetics & Wellness Institute in Tampa, offers is JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel. From the creators of BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is designed to restore the youthful skin that has been diminished by age and other skin changes. JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. The injectable gel filler is a “next generation” dermal filler that is FDA approved.
As a non-surgical procedure, Dr. Reddy offers JUVEDERM®. Using JUVEDERM® is a straight-forward procedure. First Dr. Reddy will gently ease JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel under the skin into the mid to deep dermis of the face to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, “smile lines”, or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Unlike many collagen-based types of dermal fillers, JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel provides a smooth, natural, noticeable look and feel.
There are 3 different types of JUVEDERM® Injectable Gels and Dr. Reddy will discuss which areas will bring the best results to your face. The most common areas where JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is used are:
A JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel advantage is its pliant gel consistency, which often provides a smoother, more natural-looking appearance than some of its more rigid predecessors. According to Dr. Reddy, another advantage to using JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is it can last longer than collagen fillers, maintaining the improved appearance for six to nine months, if you have follow-up treatment a few weeks after the first treatment.
JUVEDERM® Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC are dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, water, and lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the eyes and joints. It binds with water to help retain moisture, cushioning and lubricating joints and other tissues.
The volume created by JUVEDERM® is the main reason why the appearance of wrinkles is reduced. JUVEDERM® injections supplement the skin’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid, filling in wrinkles and hollow areas.
Lidocaine is a local anesthetic. The lidocaine in JUVEDERM® numbs the treatment area during and after the treatment session.
The best candidates for JUVEDERM® are people with moderate-to-severe wrinkles caused by prolonged sun exposure or other environmental factors. JUVEDERM® is also the best recommendation for people who prefer minimally invasive options for correcting age lines and enhancing facial contours.
Since JUVEDERM® is an injectable gel, people with a fast metabolic rate may not enjoy its benefits for a long time. Frequent movement can quickly break down the cosmetic filler.
Exposure to excessive heat and consumption of alcohol can also affect the quality of a JUVEDERM® treatment. If you are often exposed to these environmental and lifestyle factors, JUVEDERM® may not be a long-lasting treatment for you.
